A reminder of those balls...
LAST SEASON'S FINAL
Man City were victorious at Wembley in February... here are the highlights as they beat Arsenal 3-0 in the final.
Wise, Saha and McManaman have been in Vietnam for the last couple days, and former Chelsea midfielder Wise took part in this challenge for social media.
After several failed attempts to knock the Carabao can off the top of the League Cup trophy, he instead piledrives it at the silverware.
The draw is unseeded, but will be regionalised, meaning clubs from the north cannot face clubs from the south.
The EFL last week announced there would be no extra-time in the competition next season, with matches level after 90 minutes going straight to a penalty shoot-out.
Manchester City are the holders, having beaten Arsenal in the final at Wembley in February.
40 MINUTES TO GO
It is the second successive year the draw has been held abroad, after the 2017 draw for the Carabao Cup's opening round was staged in Bangkok.
A technical hitch affected last year's draw but that has not put the EFL off sending Steve McManaman, Louis Saha and Dennis Wise to Ho Chi Minh City.
Thai energy drinks firm Carabao, sponsors of the League Cup on a three-year deal, took the draw to Bangkok last summer, but an on-screen graphic showed Charlton playing twice and other clubs given the wrong opponents.
Seventy EFL clubs will feature in the draw, which will see teams drawn in northern and southern sections for ties to be played in the week commencing August 13.
West Brom will be included, while Championship newcomers Stoke and Swansea will join the competition in round two alongside the Premier League clubs that are not competing in Europe.
Domestic football is BACK!
Well, kind of...
Welcome to Sky Sports' live coverage of the first-round draw for the Carabao Cup. All but two of the 72 Football League clubs are involved, with Stoke and Swansea going in at the second-round stage. Sorry, West Brom...
The draw kicks off at 10.45am (we hope) from Vietnam. Louis Saha, Dennis Wise and Steve McManaman are on hand to draw the balls. What a trio!
